Things in general could have been done better. I felt I was not closely listened to & the severity of my very frequent, debilitating physical pain was not taken seriously. Am considering finding another GI specialist.

Dr. Backstedt was very concerned and helpful with my stomach issue. He listened to me and offered several treatment options. The staff was friendly and helpful and everyone was practicing virus prevention recommendations.

Dr. Backstedt listens and cares about my health issues. I did some research online and he took time to go over the information I had researched. His nurse Amanda is one of the best. She makes sure to contact me to give me the test results and anytime I call in she gets back to me. Both Dr. Backstedt and Amanda are the best health care people I have been to.
